Today I am half expecting you to add another form of training to your repertoire. The switch from several days of cold temperatures to mild weather and rain should have made your commute to MET today interesting. I believe I saw you in the cafeteria today, you were on your way out or to a meeting.

I have high hopes that Blair won't disappoint us today. This morning was deadly. I did not lift my feet up on the entire walk from home to the closest bus stop. (I didn't dare try to go down the steep hill to the t-bane...)

Thomas - you did see me. (In addition to my visit today, I'm giving a talk at CICERO on Thursday - will post the details when I get a chance).

I lasted 50 metres in an attempted intervals session this morning. Will have another go this afternoon - hopefully there will have been a reasonable amount of melting today.

It was at least gratifying, seeing the locals attempting to negotiate the ramp down from the Forskningsparken T-bane, to see that I wasn't the only person finding the conditions challenging.

What I'm getting from this is that I should wait for you to attempt your intervals this afternoon and write it up on AP before I decide whether to do mine.

My talk on Thursday is 11.45-12.45 at CICERO, at Forskningsparken ( Details are below. (It's essentially a summary of the report I've been working on in Geneva, which is coming out tomorrow).

The global climate in the five years 2011-15

The five years from 2011-15 have been the world’s warmest five-year period on record, with 2015 virtually certain to be the world’s warmest year on record. In this presentation, the latest assessments of key components of the world’s climate system will be discussed. This will include global and regional temperatures for 2011-15, significant precipitation anomalies, major extreme events (with a focus on multi-year events, such as the post-2012 droughts in Brazil and the western United States), and discussion of how climate change has (or, in some cases, has not) contributed to changes in the risk of particular extreme events. The latest available information on the cryosphere, sea levels, greenhouse gas levels and ozone depletion in polar regions will also be presented.

Interesting, I might wander by if I get a chance.

If I still worked in Forskningsparken I would definitely be there. As it is I may try to sneak out anyway, if things are calm at work, as it sounds like a good midday activity.

Congrats on the report!

Rainforests haven't made the first newspaper article (Guardian) I saw. I sort of expected it to be more prominent in the first page or two of the report, given what you were saying.
